A man's attention is attracted by a slight noise, a sort of faint whistling. He sees a device in the air at the height of a big pine tree at the edge of the property. The device was coming lower toward the ground. He clearly sees the device resting on the ground. Right away it lifted off, still emitting a slight whistling sound. Reaching a point above the trees, it left at high speed toward the forest of Trans.
On January 8, 1981, an extraordinary event occurred in Trans-en-Province, France. An unidentified object is seen landed in the yard of a man who will go by the name of Nicolai. The only drawback to the case is that it is a single witness case-the validity of the landing resting totally on his shoulders. The witness gave a full account of his sighting to police authorities, and he is considered a trustworthy and reliable individual. The case is an important one, and certainly one of the best.
Background of Witness:
Nicolai, at the time of the event, had lived at the same Trans-en-Province house for almost 14 years. He lived alone with his wife. The couple was a humble one, with Nicolai's wife working as a cleaning lady, and Nicolai retired from working for the SCNI company. Nicolai had suffered with a heart condition since 1973, which forced him into retirement six years later. He was sustained by a pension.
Flying Device Seen:
On January 8, 1981, Nicolai was busy around his house as was his usual activity. He was outside in the back yard constructing a concrete foundation for a water pump. Nicolai used a path worn into the grass that ran along the side of the house. The temperature had began to dip around 5:00 PM, when he heard a noise... like a whistling sound. He turned to find the source of the noise, and was shocked to see a flying device which was level with a large pine tree near the boundary of his property. The object began to descend.
Four Openings in Craft:
As the UFO continued its downward motion, Nicolai decided to move closer for a better view. He stopped against the wall of a cabin near the object. He clearly saw the object land in the yard. In just a moment or two, the UFO raised up, and took off. As it moved to tree top level, he could see four openings on the underside. The object had kicked up some dust as it made its way toward the Trans forest. Nicolai had watched the object from about 30 yards away.
Later, Nicolai would give investigators more details on the UFO. He says that the UFO was like two saucers, inverted on top of each other. He estimates the height as about 4 feet, and the color was a dull gray. There was also a ridge running the circumference of the object. He saw two small objects underneath the craft that he thought may have been landing feet.
GEPAN Investigates: GEPAN (a department of the French Space Agency responsible for the investigation of UFO reports) also reconstructed the trajectory and duration. The witness states he began to perceive the phenomenon in the sky above the trees at the back end of the large platform, more precisely between the two tall conifers that tower above the wood. Mr. Nicolai states that the motion was fast and continuous, without sudden changes in speed.
The Trans-en Province case is always included in discussions of some of the best cases from France, and also holds it own on a world-wide basis. Much investigation was done on the case, and though definite conclusions could be made, we must assume that a UFO landed briefly in France on January 8, 1981.
